Summer is officially here for my family! We have a family tradition of making homemade ice-cream for my wife on Mother’s Day. Since my wife recently had major knee surgery and did not feel good on Mother’s Day, we made her homemade ice-cream on Memorial Day.
When we first moved to Texas we bought a cheaper plastic homemade ice-cream maker from a popular Super Center Store. It took FOREVER to get the ice-cream to set up here in Texas. Two years ago I had to try a different homemade ice-cream maker. We bought an Aroma Homemade Ice-cream Maker and each year the homemade ice-cream sets up in approximately 30 minutes.
After preparing and mixing the best homemade banana ice-cream recipe you could ever make, you have to start by adding ice and plenty of rock salt to get the ice-cream cold enough to set up.
After the ice-cream maker stops churning, we always pack the container with ice and insulate it with towels.
And the Homemade Ice-cream is Ready!
Life is what you make it, get out of the house and off the couch. It is the little things like making homemade ice-cream on a warm summer morning that are special and where memories are made, even if it takes a couple of summers to get the recipe and process correct.
